    Default Help me double trouble

    Hello everyone,
    It is possible that you will not have a single heavy
    blade but rather an entire side of the prop that rests below the center of the balancing shaft. In other words your prop will sit on the balancer with the blades resting horizontally,
    but still be out of balance.
    how to solve this situation?
    Thanks for your support

    Yes this is possible.

    Depending on how bad it is I will attack in two different steps.

    1. if you draw an imaginary line through the prop centerline as it sits horizontal; I try and take material off of the ear and/or the tongue below your imaginary line (heavy side of course).

    2. If this continues to be a problem, I will take material out of the hub. Problem is you need to take more material out of the hub than the blade for this to be effective. Only because the hub is very close to the center of rotation.

    Good Luck!
